Hi I'm Michael

I reside in Cape Verde Islands. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am proud to be a Mormon. I love computers a great deal and I am equally interested in learning new Information Communication Technology trends. I have been in Film/TCV Production, Brand Management, Advertising and Marketing world. I am single. One of my major goals is to be married in the Temple for all Eternity. Love to gain knowledge especially in Spiritual matters and knowledge in temporal matters.

Why I am a Mormon

The first time i saw the missionaries walking by where i reside, i was so curious. I always see them walk in twos; i started thinking who they are and what they are up to. So i decided i was going to confront them and ask them myself. My first contact was Elder Stagg and Elder Ericksson. I caught their attention one evening and i inquire of them what they were up to. I thought they were working for CIA since they are Americans. But i was wrong, they are only missionaries preaching the Restored Gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. They immediately set up an appointment with me and then investigation began. It took a while for me to understand all the story. I was invited to pray inquiring from Heaven Father if all the story is true. I was thinking i would get an instant answer but the answer came after a long time about 6 months later. On that Sunday morning in a Sacrament meeting, Elder Kraniscky was given a talk and he mentioned a phrase as if he prepared the talk for me; I quote: "Be willing to accept the responsibilities of marriage" Unquote. After those words i thought about my past how I was unwillingly to accept the responsibilities and how i had phobia for marriage based on the fact that i was raised in a broken home. I felt goose pimples all over my body and i heard that small voice say to me that it is true. I felt at peace in my heart with tears in my eyes. I bear record that this is the work of our Savior Jesus Christ the Son of God which was restored through his Prophet Joseph Smith.

How I live my faith

I try to be a worthy member. I had served in the Single Adult section as a Representative of my branch. Where i helped out in the Single Adult Conference. I have been able to help in home teaching as well. I try to do that as often as i can. I have a new calling as a First Counselor in Elders Quorum where I teach and encourage members which is part of service in building up Zion.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Michael
We do not worship Joseph Smith. We worship God Almighty the creator of the whole universe. Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God; through him the the fullness of the gospel was restored and so many hidden truths was revealed. Show more Show less
